The one-day premiere benefit concert will be the first of its kind in West Vancouver, featuring performances by megastar artists SARAH MCLACHLAN, SHERYL CROW and NEIL YOUNG.

Sarah McLachlan reflects, I am thrilled to have Neil and Sheryl join me on stage at Ambleside Park this September to help raise funds for my Foundation. We hope the event will entertain and inspire, while increasing awareness of the need for music in childrens lives. I am also excited that the City of West Vancouver has partnered with us to bring this event into the community that I have been proud to call my home for so many years.

The gorgeous Ambleside Park in West Vancouver will provide the idyllic setting for the late summer concert. Alongside the premiere artists, the all day festival will include performances from an eclectic array of talented Canadian artists.

All proceeds from the concert go to the Sarah McLachlan Foundation.

About the Sarah McLachlan Foundation:

The Sarah McLachlan Foundation was founded in 1999, inspired by the vision of founding partner, international singer and songwriter, Sarah McLachlan. The Foundations mandate is simple: to bring music into the lives of young Canadians, through providing free music programs to youth in under-served communities. The impact of participation is profound: building self- esteem, and fostering creativity in young people through the power of music.

In 2002, The Foundation launched its first school, Sarah McLachlan Music Outreach - An Arts Umbrella Project, in Vancouver's inner city, offering students free music instruction in guitar, piano, percussion, voice, rock band, music fundamentals and choir. This innovative program
reaches over 200 students, grades 2 through 12, offering group and private lessons, practice rooms, and a media lab to create original works of music. The school provides an inspiring, secure place where students go to learn, practice, and connect with friends. Students acquire a life-long appreciation of music, and enthusiasm for learning, but most importantly, Sarah McLachlan Music Outreach offers a nurturing environment where young people learn important life skills, are free to explore their creative potential and develop peer connections that will last a lifetime.
